New 7 Wonders of Nature Nominees

With the new 7 Wonders of the World having been announced last year (07.07.07) in Lisbon, Portugal, a new campaign has now started which will run until December 31, 2008, and this is for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Voting is quite easy by just going to their website (, you can put in not just 1 vote, but 7 different votes!
At the start of 2009, a shortlist of top 21 candidates will be announced to which voting will once again resume for the New 7 Wonders of Nature (which will be announced in 2010).

As of April 24, 2008, the top 10 rankings are as follows:
1. Ha Long Bay - Vietnam (Asia)
2. Cox's Bazar, Beach - Bangladesh (Asia)
3. Ganges River - Bangladesh/India (Asia)
4. Amazon River - Bolivia/Brazil/Columbia (South America)
5. Mount Everest - Nepal (Asia)
6. Mount Fuji - Japan (Asia)
7. Tubbataha Reef - Philippines (Asia)
8. Fernando de Noronha - Brazil (South America)
9. Pinnacles Desert - Australia (Oceania)
10. Ein Gedi, Oasis - Israel (Asia)

On personal note, I am fortunate enough to have been to 3 of the top 10 rankings in this one year period alone (from April 2007 - April 2008), so looking forward to the results (just didn't expect wait time to be this long). My own personal 7 votes are as follows:

Tubbataha Reef
Mount Everest, Mountain
Ayers Rock (Uluru), Rock Formation
Great Barrier Reef, Coral Reef
Cappadocia, Rock Formation
Pamukkale, Springs
Grand Canyon, Canyon
Start Voting Now !!
